What is the difference between online education , adult education, and self-study exams? Many students will ask, which is better? Let's talk about the differences and similarities between the three!
I. Different entry thresholds
Must participate in the national unified admissions entrance examination held in October each year, the examination is relatively difficult, the school to be admitted based on the results of the test to choose the best admission, after admission usually in the second year of February or March.
There are no entrance examinations, and no academic qualifications are required. Social candidates can register. Candidates take a single subject exam, pass one, and issue a certificate. After all subjects pass, a diploma is issued. The examination time varies slightly between provinces and cities. Most regions have two examination periods each year, namely, self-study examinations are held in April and October.
The examinations are organized by the admissions colleges on their own propositions, and admission is based on merit. The enrollment is divided into two seasons, one in spring and one in autumn, and students usually enter in March and September.
2. Different learning methods
After the adult college entrance examination is enrolled, follow the teacher's instructions to arrange your own study. However, you need to come to school in your spare time or Saturday, Sunday, winter and summer vacation. This will cause a lot of inconvenience to the working people in the society.
Participants are fully autonomous in arranging the progress of their studies and examinations, with self-directed learning as the most difficult method of learning.
It is also called distance education . It is a form of education that has become better and better in recent years, and it is also the direction that various universities are developing. Online education is only eligible for key national universities such as the 211 Project and the 985 Project. Currently, there are only 68 universities in China that offer online education. The learning form of online education is to use computer networks to learn. Students usually log in to the learning platform at home and click on courseware and teaching materials together to complete their homework. At the end of the period, they can take the exam at the school. If there are any learning questions that can be sent to the teacher via forum, email, phone, etc., the teacher will give a reply. The learning mode is autonomous, flexible, and independent of time and place. It is very suitable for on-the-job learning.
Third, the learning cycle is different
Adult education: There is only one entrance examination opportunity in October each year. After enrollment, students cannot enter the school until the spring of the next year, so it takes 3-3.5 years to graduate, and the study cycle is relatively long.
Self-study exams: Exams are held in April and October each year, but there is currently no face-to-face or correspondence education, and the efficiency of autonomous learning is certainly not high. In this way, the graduation rate of students is relatively low and the learning cycle will be long.
Online education: Admission in March and September of the spring and autumn seasons, 2.5 years of schooling, online courses are full-time professor level or above, strong teachers, and online courseware is open 24 hours a day, any courseware can be through a computer, mobile phone, etc. Mobile terminal learning, and the usual homework can be completed by interacting with the teacher online. The final exam has a review outline for everyone to review. Therefore, the annual graduation rate is high and the study time is short.
Fourth, the academic certificate gold content
The entrance examinations, self-study exams and online education certificates are all registered electronically by the Ministry of Education. The gold content of the certificate is the same.
Self-examination: There is no threshold academic system, the examination is difficult, and the graduation cycle is long.
Entrance Examination: There are uniform entrance examinations and pre-degree qualifications, a certain attendance rate, and a long time for students to graduate.
Network education: there are pre-requisite academic qualifications, the academic system is generally 2.5 years, students have a short graduation time, and the study time and methods are flexible.
